“Sight” – Fearless #4

Posted on Tuesday March 20th, 2018

Fearless (guy) - edit

“Sight” is the fourth message in the Lent 2018 series, Fearless, at Erma Tabernacle.  The story today is the classic one of the Man Born Blind in John chapter 9.  I encourage you to read the chapter and then watch the video.

This is an excellent story of Believing Is Seeing, kind of a sub-heading of this series.  If you have questions, comments, and/or general feedback, I’d love to hear/read it.  Just drop me a note.

Daily Blessings,

Saint Patrick – “micro bio”

Posted on Tuesday March 20th, 2018

Image - Saint Patrick (edit)

On Saint Patrick’s Day 2018, I was asked to present a brief background about the life of the day’s namesake during a breakfast held at Erma Tabernacle.  Even though I live out the expression, “The teacher learns more than the student,” I hope you will gain something from this that you didn’t know before about this servant of Christ.

Daily Blessings,

Pastor Glenn

“Water” – Fearless #3

Posted on Tuesday March 6th, 2018

Fearless (girl) - edit

We are deep into the Lenten season with this 3rd message in our Fearless series.  “Water” draws from (pun intended) the Gospel of John chapter 4 – the story of the Woman at the Well.  Maybe you’ve heard/read it before.  Listen for something new.

Reference is made to previous message in this series.  Check them out, probably where you are viewing this one.  They all can be watched on the Pastor’s Page tab at

Lenten Blessings,

Pastor Glenn

“About Face” – for Transfiguration Sunday

Posted on Tuesday February 6th, 2018

We are in-between series at Erma Tabernacle.  Here is a stand-alone message for Transfiguration Sunday, re-recorded from February 4.  There is a lot of back-and-forth between the story from the Gospel of Mark (chapter 9, verses 2 through 8) and the Old Testament.  At least in the video, if I am speaking too fast then […]

“Newly Reconditioned” – 1st of 2018

Posted on Wednesday January 10th, 2018

Using Ephesians chapter 3, this re-recorded message from January 7 worship at Erma Tabernacle looks back at 2017 and visions forward into 2018.  “Newly Reconditioned” is both a stand-alone and a moving -ahead call to action. I realize that several who cannot attend weekly worship view these videos.  Others who are not connected to Erma […]
